My child needs care all summer will they get bored?
Not at all! Every day of camp is different and the themed weeks are so fun for the kids. Last year during career week, Head Coach of the Jaguars came and spoke to our campers along with numerous other exciting special guests. During creative camp, campers decorated cakes, and made dinner. Science camp is full of fun and engaging projects. There are so many different activities going on campers are constantly engaged.
What if I only need part time care?
Many campers attend camp only from 9:00-12:00 each day, this gives parents the opportunity to keep kids engaged over the summer and on a schedule without the fees of full day camp. We also offer drop in care and have daily rates. Many campers only come a few days a week based on when their parents need care or when the campers are getting bored at home. Feel free to reach out with any questions concerning this.
Can I just bring my child for day?
We offer daily rates and drop in care. Just print the form off and bring it in on the morning of the day you need care. If you have any questions please call Coach Polster 904-813-6254.
Are snacks provided?
The Concession stand will be open during snack time and lunch time. Lunch is available to purchase each day or campers can bring their own.
Will my camper receive a t-shirt?
All campers receive a T-shirt on Monday morning at check in. In order to keep camp costs down, we do not give out a new T-shirt each week for campers who attend more than one week during the summer. Additional T-shirts can be purchased for $10 per shirt.
Who will be the counselors at camp?
Many of our coaches at camp, coach a varsity sport at local schools, they are extremely qualified and so excited to be a part of camp this summer. All coaches have been finger-printed and have taken the “Protecting God’s Children” course. This course is required of all diocesan staff. In addition to our Coaches, we also have Coaches-in-Training. These teenagers attend local high schools. They provide help to all the coaches during day-to-day activities.
What if my child has food allergies?
Coach Polster’s Sports Camps accept campers with food allergies. Camp is not a milk or peanut free environment, however we strive to create a safe place for those children with specific food allergies.
Parents are encouraged to seek peanut-free snacks and lunch alternatives to bring to Camp. Our concession stand does offer peanut free options and the afternoon snack is peanut free.
For students who have any kind of life-threatening condition requiring medication (for example: asthma, diabetes, food/insect allergies with anaphylaxis), we ask that families provide us with those items of equipment or prescribed medication necessary to implement the care needed (EPI-PENs, inhalers, medications). We ask that students keep these on them. Their counselor will also have a “team bag” they are able to store their medical equipment in. If your camper requires medicine please fill out a medical care plan and bring it with you on the first day.
